Need power? Get one...



Power Dynamo power... 100 watts of juice so Alex can have his seat warmer  cheesy



One KX Guru Racing designed two piece clutch cover coming up!



Custom foot peg brackets to mount newer style pegs on..



Two piece clutch cover is just about done..
Just needs to test fit and grind a little from the ID.

Is there a reference point photo of how much to machine off those cases for the two piece conversion?

Awesome sandblaster just let me get the calculator for the metric conversion  smiley

Is there a need to increase the oil capacity for any greater reliability by slightly lifting the cover off the clutch pack with a spacer?

I've never added any extra thickness... but then I always dump in the entire bottle of oil in so I've always been about 50ml over the recommended volume of oil. And the wider you make the clutch cover stick out the more you will need to mod your rear brake lever.

If you have not tried one, Guts racing makes amazing seats.



Purdy blue stuff



I hear that you don't mess with Wookies or they might pull your arms out of there sockets...
Let's not test that theory..



Alex is no stranger to hardcore rides..

2200 miles shouldn’t be that tough. I put a barrel of c12 through my kx every winter with minimal maintenance. Usually a piston every season as I find they are much easier to change when they are in one piece.
